Start a New Holiday Tradition at LightsUp!

November 07, 2022

For more than three decades, Tucson Botanical Gardens has drawn holiday crowds from all over the region and the country eager to bask in the glow of more than 3,000 luminarias installed by talented local artists and visionaries. But this year, it’s different; we’ve upped the wattage and can’t wait to see you blink in disbelief. Designed by nationally renowned public garden landscape architect Tres Fromme, a carefully curated series of illuminated experiences will transform the Gardens into a glittering wonderland of lights. Six distinct but meticulously connected thematic zones with their own unique color palettes will lead visitors through more than a million lights, custom-built oversized installations, and inspiring pieces of sculpture created by local artisans. Be dazzled by a 50-foot light tunnel, choreographed cypress trees, and so much more. Lights shine from 5:30 to 9:30 pm six nights a week. Visit the website to purchase tickets, and stay the night at Westward Look.
